What year is the one you're looking at? There were two distinct 510s. The early 2 and 4 door versions are equipped with a nice little IRS system (the station wagon has a live axle), and have HUGE potential. They have a healthy following, and were very popular in road racing.

but the only problem is that it does not come with power steering
if you put an sr20de in, then dont you have to change the rear end to support the power of the engine?

I'm currently buidling an L20b.....the L series engines are one of the major nails that were driven in by the Japs as they began their world domination.

The Datsun 510's were built pretty tough, and shouldn't be too bad. I wish I had one.

ChrisV, I saw those cars in a few rallys. Know anything about that?
